Cairns Famous Liveaboard Dive Boat

Departing from Cairns we take our guests to see the best parts of the outer Great Barrier Reef so they can spend a few days exploring the depths of the ocean to see the most brilliant of corals and marine life that call these outer reefs home   

We have exclusive dive permits for 15 coral reef sites on the Great Barrier Reef and each day the skipper decides which of these reef locations will offer our guests the most brilliant dive and snorkel conditions.

Our liveaboard dive boat normally visits two reef locations per day.   

Join us and book your cabin on our Cairns floating hotel for your dive trip of a lifetime.

Upgrade to the "Exclusive Captains Club' and enjoy all the VIP privileges with your very own private valet who will look after your every need on your liveaboard scuba dive trip.
